As "THE Startup hub", Lyon French Tech is the only organisation in Lyon that gathers all start-up/scale-up based in Lyon Métropole, no matter what industry they belong to (Digital (software, hardware) / HealthTech / CleanTech / FoodTech / FinTech / Manufacturing, Education, Entertainment, Security, Sport, Retail,..).
We are « the place be » to « make our start-up / scale-up community smarter and bigger, by fostering «networking and collaborative intelligence» in between peers.
The Goal of this format: Getting to « introduce to startuppers only» your new startup (and as a mirror, getting to know new peers in our community.
This could lead to:
-Become a member of Lyon French Tech: It is free and easy: You « only » have to register your start-up in our Database (therefore, we guarantee that you will exclusively be « with your peers » – No web agency, no communication agency, no lawyers, no accountants, no bookkeepers,... ONLY STARTUP/SCALEUP during our « LFT Breakfast in English, unless « special occasions » and you will be informed ahead)
-Speak English: Well, you’re a startupper, so you and your company should be able to talk in English (since startups want to « scale » and « go global » very quickly) and this shouldn’t be an issue for you – right?:) (If « networking in english is a issue for you, then ask you the question if you should really consider your company as a « start-up » rather than a more traditionnal « Small or Medium Size Enterprise (SME) and/or if you shouldn’t hire someone who’s fluent in English, since it is THE Business language)
-Speak French: As you can see, we sometimes talk in English, other times in French (because we’re French :)) (and besides, this article actually includes both languages): that’s a way for you to get used to switch from one language to another )
-Register to Each Event: Our LFT Breakfasts, organised at Lyon French Tech (1Bis rue de la Charité, 69002 Lyon) cannot exceed 50 attendees and all participants must registered ahead (we count on you, also, to inform us if you have last minute « changes of plans » and are no longer able to attend the event: That way, you’ll enable other startuppers to participate. To Register, it's here!
We’re looking forward to seeing you at Lyon French Tech!
